Beth, we were so saddened to hear about Elmer. We'll always remember his laugh and great attitude. He had an irreverent sense of humor that we thought was spectacular and always on the mark. We will miss him.

I WAS SO SORRY TO HEAR OF ELMERS PASSING. AS A NEIGHBOR OF BETH AND ELMERS WE WOULD SEE EACH OTHER OUTSIDE AND TALK AND LAUGH ABOUT LIFE'S TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS. MY DEEPEST SYMPATHIES GO OUT TO YOU BETH AND YOUR FAMILY. I WILL MISS ELMER'S SMILING FACE AND GREAT LAUGH!
